I don't think so.
$ ls -a /
. .. bin boot cdrom dev etc floppy home initrd lib lost+found
mnt proc root sbin tmp usr var vmlinuz
cdrom irrelevant (I did confirm this)
floppy irrelevant (I did confirm this)
home mounted on different partition
usr mounted on different partition
vmlinuz symbolic link
Is there something else that I'm missing and don't realize? I just
don't understand how there can be such a difference being reported
between the two programs.
Magically turning people's old scalar contexts into list contexts is a
recipe for several kinds of disaster.
